Ms. Liz Cohen

I am delighted to have your student in my class and am looking forward to a very successful year. I have high expectations and will do all that I can to help your student achieve great success. My focus is your student’s learning and preparedness to meet the challenges they will encounter in high school next year. This is my fourth year teaching and I enjoy watching young minds grow and reach their full potential. 

In language arts we will explore genres such as fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and drama, through analysis of literature that reflects a diverse cultural and literary heritage. We will also explore the creation of each genre through the writing process. Students will enhance their language skills by emphasizing critical thinking and logical development of ideas as they use the communication skills of reading, writing, research, and media literacy.

Reading proficiency is the foundation for all other learning and must be one the highest priorities for all students.  We will emphasize comprehension and content literacy throughout the year.    

 It is my mission to provide a challenging and nurturing learner-centered atmosphere and will base my classroom approach on students' academic and personal achievement.

Go Falcons!
